K2 Management has been appointed as Owner’s Engineer for BlueFloat Energy’s 1 GW floating wind project offshore Taiwan.

The project, named Winds of September, is BlueFloat Energy’s first floating offshore wind project in Taiwan.

K2 Management is supporting BlueFloat Energy following its entry into the country’s third round of offshore wind tenders scheduled for later in 2023, which will see Taiwan adding another 3 GW of offshore wind to its existing capacity.

“With 15GW to be awarded in the round three auction for installation between 2026-2035 and the long-term target of 40-55GW of installed capacity by 2050, there is incredible potential in this market”, said Scott Hsu, Country Director, Taiwan & Philippines, K2 Management.
